Ajban, UAE 5.11.10

Wanted to spend some time at Ajban to photograph Wheatears.  I located a pair of Pied Wheatears near a pool , I could see that they didn't move to far from their current location so decided to park the Pajaero cover the window and wait.   I spent a good 90 minutes photographing the pair in various positions and lighting.   A couple of examples attached.  Unfortunately the male was only a 1st Year so not in the typical plumage of an adult Pied Wheatear, but still made a lovely subject.   An added bonus was a lovely Stonechat,  I  cannot usually distinguish Common from Siberian (we get both) so will leave it as Stonechat :-)
